Council will invest $105million in community infrastructure over the next twelve months to stimulate the local economy and provide the capital projects most valued by our community.

Sixty three million dollars will be spent on new and improved assets including new surfclubs, sports fields, playgrounds, and cycleways.

Ageing infrastructure costs ratepayers in the term long term so we’ll also invest $41million in our ongoing maintenance and asset renewal program to ensure we are keeping our existing buildings and other infrastructure in good condition.

We know that improving roads and footpaths is a priority so $12milllion will resurface 19km roads, renew 8km footpaths and build 8km of new ones.

And some of the significant infrastructure includes:

  • $7.27 million to upgrade Mona Vale Surf Lifesaving Club (Council is still required to go to tender and adopt final designs)
  • $3.9 million to commence the upgrade to Long Reef Surf Lifesaving Club
  • $7.3 million for stormwater works to reduce flooding and pollution
  • $5.0 million for Narrabeen pedestrian and cycle bridge
  • $4.5 million to commence work on a new community centre at Warriewood
  • $2.9 million for Warriewood Valley open space, sports, traffic and transport works
  • $1.57 million for Duffys Forest Rural Fire Station new building
  • $1.54 million Church Point masterplan boardwalk extension
  • $730,000 to refurbish tidal pools Clontarf and Forty Baskets
  • $1 million for Clontarf reserve playground and amenities
  • $315,000 for Collaroy Beach Accessibility ramp
